Devotional For May 28, 2024

And one cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭6‬:‭3‬

In Isaiah 6:3, we get a close view of the throne room of God, where the seraphim—heavenly beings—declare the holiness of the Lord with resounding voices. The repetition of “holy” three times emphasizes the absolute and infinite purity, majesty, and perfection of God. This triple declaration signifies that God’s holiness is complete and beyond comparison.

God’s holiness is the foundation of His character. It sets Him apart from all creation and reveals His moral perfection and absolute purity. Everything about God is holy—His love, His justice, His mercy, and His power. His holiness is not just an attribute but the essence of who He is.

The seraphim also proclaim that “the whole earth is full of His glory.” This statement points to the presence of God’s glory in all creation. Everywhere we look, we can see reflections of God’s beauty, power, and majesty. From the vastness of the universe to the intricate details of nature, God’s glory is evident and fills the earth.

Recognizing God’s holiness and glory should lead us to a response of worship. It should humble us, as it did Isaiah, making us aware of our own unworthiness and need for God’s grace. In Isaiah’s vision, he immediately recognized his sinfulness in the presence of God’s holiness, but he also experienced God’s cleansing and commissioning.

Today, take time to reflect on the holiness of God. Recognize how His glory fills the earth. And be mindful of our own need for His grace and cleansing, allowing His holiness to transform us and draw us closer to Him.

Pray

Lord, I stand in awe of Your majesty and purity. I also proclaim, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” Cleanse me from my sins and draw me closer to You, that I may reflect Your holiness in my daily walk. In Jesus’ name, amen.
